Effect of Particle Size of Recycled Glass on Concrete Properties – A Review

concrete is the most widely used man-made construction material. Globally, the concrete industry consumes large quantities of natural resources, which are becoming insufficient to meet increasing demands. It is obtained by mixing cement, water and aggregates in required proportions. Cement manufacturing industry is one of the carbon dioxide emitting sources besides deforestation and burning of fossil fuels. The global warming is caused by the emission of greenhouse gases, such as CO2, to the atmosphere. Among the greenhouse gases, CO2 contributes about 65% of global warming. In order to address environmental effects associated with cement manufacturing, there is a need to develop alternative binders to make concrete. Some of the industrial wastes like fly ash, silica fume, blast furnace slag etc have already established their usage in concrete. Recently the research has shown that the waste glass powder can be effectively used as a cement replacement material in concrete. Waste glass when grounded to a very fine powder shows some pozzolanic properties because of silica content. This paper presents review of the literature based on the effect of particle size of recycled glass on the properties of concrete. Keywords— Glass Powder, Pozzolanic Properties, Compressive Strength, Tensile Strength, Workability.
